Our go to spot in Canggu was Grocer & Grind. Already a successful cafe in Seminyak, the touristy part of Bali, G&G opened up a brand new location down the street from our villa. It has A/C, wifi, amazing coffee and a cheap beautiful breakfast, what more could you ask for?
I find myself falling out of hate and learning to appreciate foods in nearly every country we visit. This time it was the poached egg. Grocer & Grind mastered the poached egg and I’ll forever love them for that.
Frequenting the restaurant as much as we did, we began to make friends with the servers. One server in particular was named Agoon. Towering over almost everyone he met, the 6’6 server was quite literally a friendly giant. He welcomed us with a smile everyday and would tell us stories about when he use to work on a cruise ship. He may not be making as much money as he did on the cruise ships, but he gets to see his family and he says he can’t deny his love for his homeland.
I can’t deny my love for Bali either, Agoon.
